Is Katie Holmes set to play Elena Lincoln a.k.a Mrs. Robinson in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie?

That's what the latest rumors are surrounding the highly anticipated erotic film adaption.

According to Refinery29, Tom Cruise's ex-wife wants to play the controversial role of Elena in the 2014 film.

"She's looking at this as the role of a lifetime for her," a source allegedly told the National Enquirer. "It will shock a lot of people but she thinks Hollywood will sit up and take notice."

Of course, this is just a rumor surrounding 34-year-old Holmes, and many really can't see her playing a dominating role like that, but you never know.

The Stir writer Maressa Brown said:

"I could definitely see reinvention being a motivator for Katie, considering how her career has been pretty lackluster lately. She may be trying to follow in Nicole Kidman's footsteps. If you recall, after Nic and Tom split, the now Oscar-winning actress took some serious career risks and ended up recreating herself in a way that ended up making her one of Hollywood's most sought-out, feted actresses."

"Plus, she could give the film a bit of star power it's currently lacking ... Come to think of it, this may be a win-win!"

The big bad thing about Holmes as Elena is that she is definitely not old enough to play the role.

In case you don't really know who Mrs. Robinson is, (but you should since you are reading this article) [SPOILER ALERT] Elena was one of Christian's mother's close married older friends, and coaxed him into an affair with her.

Elena was Christian's first sexual experience and, according to him, introduced him to the world of BDSM by making him her submissive, which sparked teenage arousal in him. The affair lasted until he was twenty-one when her husband found out, and although they are no longer sexual, they still remain close friends (until "Fifty Shades Freed").

Other fan-favorites for the role of Elena Lincoln are Cameron Diaz, Michelle Pfeiffer, Charlize Theron, Uma Thurman, Sharon Stone, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, and Cate Blanchett, and "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall.

"You'll be 'kindred spirits' with the newest member of #TeamFifty. Victor Rasuk joins #FiftyShades as Jose Rodriquez!" James retweeted on Oct. 31.
